Nick uses stained, painted, and fused glass to create vibrant glass sculptures. Her watercolours incorporate stained glass techniques on their glass.

Her work is strongly narrative exploring the interaction of people and landscape, incorporating birds, which represent (for her) quiet, reflection and freedom and contrast with an increasingly frenetic world.

“I have found that events over the last two years have had a major impact on my work, one that I am still exploring.

The impact of Covid and the resulting lockdown as well as unrelated serious health issues have led to new approaches to my work on paper.

My work is heading into unknown territory, from paintings of flowers to sketches of trees and now an exploration of collage and acrylic with a strongly aboral theme

I am still working in glass, although focusing more on small painted and foiled sculptures.”
